It's that time of year again! The best and possibly the most hectic time of the year - the holidays.
The holidays are for family gatherings and if you're accustomed to hosting the Thanksgiving dinner for the family, then you know how stressful it can be. So, preparing your home for the holidays is important to alleviate some stress - and mess. Here are some tips on how to prep the heart of your home, the kitchen, for the holidays.
1. Be Nice to Your Sink
If you're big on cooking those hardy meals for the family, maybe it's time to consider a sink upgrade. Kitchly has some of the most durable sinks and faucets on the market - equipped with all you need to cook with confidence. Our ZLINE 23" Meribel Undermount Single Bowl Kitchen Sink with Bottom Grid has creased accent lines and basin sloping, which helps drainage. Plus, it comes with a removable cutting board and stainless steel coriander. All ZLINE sinks have garbage disposal compatibility (sold separately).
2. Don't Forget to Clean Your Range Hood Vents
When cooking and hosting, the last thing you want is for the smoke detector to continuously go off, or worse, a fire. One way to help prevent this from happening is to give your range hood filters a deep clean before the holidays. When this is not cleaned properly, it becomes difficult for the range hood to do its job efficiently, causing unclean air in your kitchen. Most range hood filters are dishwasher friendly, so you simply need to remove them, give them a hot rinse, and throw them in the dishwasher. While you wait for the filters, wipe down the underside of your range hood with a damp cloth and gentle cleaning solution.
If your range hood seems impossible to clean, Kitchly has a variety of stainless steel range hoods with a modern design. Our ZLINE Recirculating Under Cabinet Range Hood model includes an efficient recirculating system that uses a charcoal filter to trap smoke, grease, and odors at the source and recirculate air, no ducting required.

4. Clean you Microwave
Keeping your microwave clean and sanitary for the family to warm up those Thanksgiving leftovers is important. Cleaning your microwave is a breeze. Using a microwave safe bowl filled with 1:2 parts water to vinegar, set the timer to 5 minutes, and wipe out the microwave with a rag, be careful as the steam and bowl contents will be hot.
